Food was really mediocre. Everything from rice to salad and chips to chicken tasted the same. Furthermore my girlfriend got food poisoning from her shrimps. Cannot recommend.

Our condo is close by, so we often find it quick and easy to visit. Consistently good, both food and service. Everyone pitches in to make it a good visit. We will return. Brenda did a great job, thank you.

I'd definitely recommend coming here for the fresh and flavorful ceviche. It's so authentic, delicious, and affordable. They have two sizes - medium and large. The medium was definitely plentiful for two to share as an appetizer or as an addition to other menu items such as tacos (it comes in a plate, as opposed to a small glass cup... More

We had a delicious lunch here - it's obvious why this spot received the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence. The arracheras (skirt steak), shrimp tacos and mango Marguerita were all quite good, but the standout was definitely shrimp in turbante (bacon-wrapped shrimp in mango sweet and sour chutney sauce) was to die for. If you like seafood, steak and Mexican food,... More

Chiltepin Marisquillos is the real deal, a neighborhood Mexican restaurant frequented mostly by locals. It's a bit of a walk from the main tourist area of 5th avenue but worth the effort. GPS it if you have to. Mostly seafood and if you love shrimp you'll be in heaven. The service is great, the prices very reasonable and the outdoor... More

A local recommended this place for its excellent seafood and better prices than the 5th Ave. It was all true. The additional bonus was that when I ordered a large ceviche appetizer, it came REALLY large! Like, main entre size. And it was excellent, too. It's a popular place, and it gets busy in the evening. On a Thursday night,... More

The 20 minute walk in the heat off the beaten path away from the tourist district was totally worth it for the fresh tuna tostadas and ceviche. Our waiter was absolutely amazing! And our food bill was even more surprising. We all had tacos, tostadas, ceviche, margaritas, beer and chips. The bill for 4 people including our 20% tip was... More

This place was amazing, the staff and the food are phenomenal! Being allergic to seafood I was not sure what I was able to eat, but the chicken fajitas were beyond delicious! And real margarita's where you can taste the tequila! This meal was better then all the food put together at the resort we are staying at. The best... More

My wife and I visited this restaurant for our last lunch in Mexico. The place next door had been recommended, but they weren't open yet when we arrived 15 minutes after their opening time so we tried Chiltepin Marisquillos. I am so glad we did! This was one of our best meals in Mexico. We had a pretty simple meal,... More

Nice bar restaurant with a pool customers can use and friendly staff. A no-frills site with the local equivalent of decent pub grub. Good if you're hungry but not if you're looking to treat yourself. No doubt better for an evening party
